Talk “TEC” to Me at Gadsden State

 Gadsden State Community College is dedicated to enhancing the learning opportunities for its students by providing traditional, hybrid, and eLearning courses that incorporate platforms for electronic communication and research. 

During the week of March 28, the College is promoting the TEC (Technology Engagement across the Curriculum) Initiative with new banners and signs at all Gadsden State campuses.  To highlight the many ways instructors use technology in the classroom, the QEP (Quality Enhancement Plan) Implementation Team is sponsoring an essay contest for current students.  Students are encouraged to write an essay on how technology has enhanced their educational experience.

For more information visit our web site at www.gadsdenstate.edu/tec. Students should submit their essays at the same site.  A technology-related prize will be awarded for the best essay as judged by faculty and staff.  The deadline to submit an essay is Friday, April 8.

Come “Talk TEC to Me” at www.gadsdenstate.edu!  While there, visit the eLearning department to find out more about the many ways technology is being used to enhance the learning experience of students at Gadsden State Community College.
